The Headout experience was perfect. Everything went smoothly and the monuments were magnificent. The only downside was the long queue to the Roman Forum, especially in full sun. A day well spent!

We had to do the tour blind. Italian/English panels only, as the audioguide provided by headout on their app didn't work. However, the places we visited were magnificent.

We were impressed by the monumental Roman architecture. Thanks to the pre-reserved tickets, we didn't have to wait. Unfortunately, the very hot temperatures dampened our tour somewhat.

The purchase process is quite practical, I received the tickets by mail a few minutes after the purchase, the entrance to the Colosseum was fast and smooth. I did not use the audio guide.

The glory of the Colosseum

The Colosseum is one of Italy’s most popular destinations. Believed to have been constructed as a gift from the ancient emperors to the Roman people, this grand outdoor amphitheater once served as an epicenter for entertainment, hosting various public spectacles and games. A stage for gladiator fights, often including animals, the Colosseum has quite a bloody past. Step back in time, marvel at the impressive architecture, and walk the floor of the greatest arena known to mankind.

Marvel at the Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

Your Colosseum ticket also includes entry to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Head to the Roman Forum and travel back in time as you walk along the same paths as the ancient Romans did. You’ll get a chance to witness popular sites including the Temple of Antoninus Pius, Temple of Castor and Pollux, Temple of Saturn, Arch of Septimius Severus, and much more.

Palatine Hill offers one of the best views of the city. Here, the lush Farnese Gardens offer a peaceful escape from the crowds. Relax amidst manicured terraces, statues, and panoramic views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Once considered the most desirable neighborhood in Rome, Palatine Hill lives on an extensive archaeological site and was the chosen spot for Emperors to build their homes.

With plenty of ticket options, you can personalize your tour to include bits that interest you the most. Get exclusive access to the arena or add a multimedia video to your tour. To enhance your experience, add a fun city walking tour to your cart and explore the melting pot of old and new stories of Rome with a guide.
